9781883536015: Origins of Mental Illness : Temperament, Deviance and Disorder

What determines the form of mental illness from which particular people suffer? Professor Claridge's central theme is that "psychiatric" disorders--even in their most severe forms--are abnormal manifestations of temperamental and personality characteristics we all possess to a greater or lesser degree. Examining the major forms of abnormality from this point of view, the author puts particular emphasis on the continuity between schizophrenia and normal behavior.

From the Publisher:

"In an immensely readable fashion, Claridge brings to life important studies on the nature of our own personality, mental illness and madness. He links the normal with the abnormal, the creative and the mad, the workaday research of psychology with the florid experience of the mentally ill. And he does it with humility, sense and brilliance. This is an important book, because it brings to the general reader and the professional an unrivaled range of experience, competence, and understanding. A triumph!" --Robert Ornstein
